Blog Tour: Merlin's Harp by Anne Compton

Summary from Goodreads:

Among the towering trees of magical Avalon, where humans dare not tread, lives Niviene, daughter of the Lady of the Lake and apprentice to Merlin the mage. Her people, the Fey, are folk of the wood and avoid the violence and avarice of man. But the strife of King Arthur's realm threatens even Avalon's peace, and Merlin needs his apprentice to thwart the chaos devouring Camelot. And so Niviene must use her special talents to help save a kingdom and discover the treachery of men and the beauty of love. A mystical love story, now back in print, sure to become a modern teen classic.


Have you ever had a book that no matter how many times you started it you just couldn't for the life of you get into it? Well, that's what happened with me and Merlin's Harp, and because of that, I'm sorry to say that I don't have a review to share with you today of this book. Maybe someday I'll  try to start it again, but for now it's just not the book for me. Though, to see some over reviews of this, head over to Steph Su's blog to read her thoughts and see other blogs participating in the tour.

Grade: N/A

Source: Sourcebook Fire for review. Thanks!

Merlin's Harp
is now out.

And here's an excerpt from the book:

Merlin's Harp Chapter 1 Excerpt


  1. That's okay! Honesty comes first. Maybe this book wasn't for you. Or's not time to read it yet. :) You can always try to read it again.

  2. I got this type of feeling with The Beautiful Dead.

  3. I know that you mean. That's what happened when I met Gemma Doyle.

  4. I feel you. I have to really push myself to get through this one. I kept telling myself, "it's so short . . ."

  5. Since it is the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.............................................

  6. I can't remember the titles, but yes this has happened to me. I give the book the benefit of the doubt if my mind is preoccupied by big issues. Sometimes I can get into the book at another time, and with other books it's hopeless.
